You may even find yourself eye-to-eye with a cuddly koala – always remember, look but don’t touch, they are wild animals. Due to the natural setting of Port Stephen’s Koala Sanctuary you may spot echidnas shuffling around on the ground around the walkways. If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of an adorable brush tail possum hanging out in a tree hollow as well.

What people are saying about Hunter Region

Perfect for an animal lover! We were able to observe a total of 13 koalas, all of which are cared for by the attentive team. We are allowed to watch how they change their bandages and they eat. Great experiences!

Fantastic. Thoroughly recommend it. Great for families. Worthwhile spending the extra $10 to hire a wet suit so you can walk into deeper water to feed and pat the rays and sharks.

Such a beautiful place to go and visit. The koalas were either eating or sleeping but we’re cute. I adopted a koala called Tilly Highly recommend visiting this place

Such an amazing place. The stingrays are absolutely beautiful and very friendly.

A fab family experience to touch, learn & support!
